What do you do when you are hungry and there are limited snacks at home ? Both - the hubby and I - were bored and hungry on Friday evening after dinner. Yeah.. we get hungry a lot after dinner. Just do not know why. We could have double serving of dinner and still feel hungry after.
The first thing that came into my mind was : Mug Cake. We have a to go recipe (<=click) for mug cake and loved it. But it called for the use of almond butter and we do not have almond butter at home.
I decided to google for a recipe that uses ingredients which I have at home. First on google list was this recipe from Delighted mum. I was skeptical as it does not use baking soda at all !
Desperate for snack.. I decided to give it a try( with a few changes) which was a good decision because this cake is so easy and soooo sooo good.
We have since make it twice and I cannot resist the temptation to make it again after writing this post :)
My adapted version:
- 3 tbs of almond meal
- 3 tbs of cocoa powder
- 2 tbs of honey ( more if you like it sweet)
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- Mix all of the ingredients together in a microwave safe mug.
- Microwave for 2 minute
